Hey Chris! I'm living in Ballarat, or the "rat" haha, and before that lived in Geelong for a couple of years. Went well with the application,was a rush to get it all done in 7days though, had to get a new passport, and to get that a new birth certificate..phew! im still waiting to hear back from them to hear that they received my application, its almost 2 weeks now, haha so I'm trying to take your advice and be patient :)
hows ur online course coming along? hey i was thinking, if we both get in to the internship, did u want to try and get on the same flight to China? I havent been overseas without my parents before so I'd love to have someone else to get the flight with, and to talk 2 when we first arrive. Thats a while away yet though, just a thought :) goodluck with the course! x
Thanks Crystal! :)
My name is Crystal, I work for i-to-i in the Australian office.
I just thought that I would send you a big warm WELCOME TO CHALKBOARD! Awesome to see that you're booked onto the China internship!! I'm sure you, and all of the other interns will have an epic time!
Be sure to put up loads of pictures of your trip!
If you're ever in need of some TEFL advice please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help.
Hello Jessica, great to see another local girl from OZ joining the internship thats fantastic! I live in North Melbourne so I'm basically a city boy but have been living and working in Gippsland (Inverloch) for the past 8 mnths....great beaches and surf!! Where abouts do you live? How did you go with your application, there was a little bit to organise hopefully it went well. Be a little patient with the response, I received an e-mail about 2 weeks later confirming they've received my application and an organiser will be in touch within 4 weeks and am waiting for them to make contact. So in the interim i'm just focusing on completing my TEFL and getting excited about the prospects.
A girl named Gaby from Cornwall in the U.K has also joined the internship and has set up a facebook page called 'China Internship August 2011' so join up if you wish, I think it'll be a great support base for us all as things progress. Also thank you so much for your encouraging words and wishes it's greatly appreciated....sounds like we have a little in common. Best of luck with everything and looking forward to staying in touch. :-) x
I just signed up to the internship last week, sent my stuff away yesterday. The character reference is just basically a tick box thing, with a space for any comments. Then just the details of the person who is writing the reference for you.
Hope that helps! :)
Hey, my names jess and im hoping to head to China for the August 2011 Internship.
Would love to meet anyone else who is/is thinking of..
Also question: what does the character reference on the application require?
I have less than 7days to get one together and still waiting for my passport to come through, eek!! :s so can't access the character reference part of the application yet..would be great if anyone can let me know!
